Walbernize, Best Cleaner for Plasticote?

The plasticote on my Airstream is in pretty good shape for being 37 years old. I do have some black scuffs, tape, and other things stuck to plasticote. Is Walbernize the best product for cleaning or is there another?

Walbernize is the best as per Airstream.

Before I order, I want to make sure that this stuff cleans as well as it shines. Or is this stuff just a wax?

Also, I read on another post that this stuff doesn't work well on older Airstreams. Is this true?

Mike.

If you want to wax your 72, how old is the plasticoat?

If it's the original finish, then if and when you rub on the plasticoat, you will be taking it off with any wax of any kind.

Mike,

For 1974 and older you would use the stuff in the white bottle according to Airstream, if the finish is original. You might want to look at this thread also:
